Attack Your Day!: Before It Attacks You

Mark Woods, Trapper Woods

Price: FREE

This Kindle ebook is all about managing our lives so as best to capitalize on three precious gifts – time, energy and choice. In an interesting and inspirational manner it helps us to examine everything that we are doing (or not doing) and to isolate those areas which are making our lives less than fruitful.
While it comes with excellent recommendations from all kinds of CEOs, academics and motivators, it is what this ebook has to say to the ordinary person like myself that is the real key to its value. If we are unhappy with how we are navigating our way through life, this ebook sets out to show us how to organize ourselves better. Even those who are wholly satisfied with how they’re handling things, and are just reading it out of curiosity, are bound to find a useful tip here and there to try out.
No matter who we are or how wealthy, we only have a finite amount of time in which to do the things we would like to, and to fit them into our schedule amongst the things we must do. This Kindle ebook provides us with the tools to increase our productivity in the most efficient way, while still being able to enjoy our lives. Among the many ebooks on personal organization, it stands out for me because of its practical and inspirational advice.

The Truth About Getting the Best from People (2nd Edition)

Martha I. Finney

Price: FREE

“Getting The Best From People” by Martha Finney is an excellent read for anyone either already in or aspiring to management. The book is around 240 pages, divided into 8 sections (creativity was my favorite), and consists of 69 small chapters of 1-3 pages on various management topics. Some of my personal favorites were:
1. Being engaged with your employees.
2. You have the choice of inspiring your employees by being a visionary or deflating them by constant monitoring of performance.
3. Make being with your new hire the first week your priority – start him/her on the right foot.
4. Learning to be flexible without compromising principles.
5. Dealing with people as individuals – everyone is different and needs to be treated accordingly (again, you do not have to compromise your principles).
6. Be sure to show appreciation to employees who are solid but do not bring attention to themselves.
7. Everyone has the capacity to be creative.
8. Putting extreme pressure on employees can destroy their creativity – learn to back off!
9. The way you listen to your employees says a lot about you.
10. The advantages of telecommuting or having a quiet workplace.
The book may be completed in a few sittings and was an enjoyable read. I think that if these principles were followed by managers, the workplace would be more enjoyable and productive. Having been a manager at one time, I can appreciate the book. Having several types of managers over me in my career, I can think of some that would benefit from this book!
Read, enjoy, and be challenged to be a better manager (if you are one) or to evaluate what it takes to be successful as a prospective manager.

Michael Taylor

In the Second Edition of the successful book, The Truth About Getting the Best From People, Martha Finney shares over 60 proven principles for achieving employee engagement one-hundred percent of the time. This new edition features more than 15 new truths including: managing virtual teams, building persuasive skills, tuning into your own unconscious biases, managing multiple generations, and identifying and cultivating individual high performers.
***Note from Ashley: I’m going to be reading this book and looking for tips on getting the best from my kids. I’m thinking there will be some useful info!

zero

Church Zero: Raising 1st Century Churches out of the Ashes of the 21st Century Church

Peyton Jones

Price: FREE

The book is Peyton and his wife Andrea on paper. It’s provocative. Bold. Rough. Gracious. Focussed at reaching the lost, and equipping believers to become Invaders. Church Zero Will raise eyebrows and pastoral blood pressure and a few disagreements. Maybe more than a few. Most of all it will expand the work force of the kingdom.

Bill Welsh

A radical call to reform, Church Zero is a punk-rock approach to the pressing issue of gaining ground as rapidly as the early church.

With a fresh perspective forged in the dirty trenches of international post-Christian societies, Peyton Jones pulls no punches as he brings this message to the American Church: We have lost our way.

The church is losing ground fast: losing the generation under age 30 and drawing few nonbelievers toward Christ.

Christ gave us a leadership model for commando outreach, and the church has ignored it for too long. Will we continue down the path of self-preservation, defending our stalled church structures? Or will we follow the blueprint Jesus lays out?

Church Zero challenges readers to once again become a radical, dangerous people who cannot be ignored. It’s time to break out!

How to eBay in Real Life: International Sales

Sam Rovin

Price: FREE

This book was inspiring to say the least. I do a lot on EBay myself, these tips were all very helpful and really easy to apply. Many of the chapters of this book are great for people who are just beginning EBay. I was so impressed with how fun and easy this book was to read. I finished it in two sittings, I didn’t want to stop reading it. The stories were so interesting and inspiring. I love that the authors made this book relatable to all readers whether young or old, or new to selling online or a veteran to this whole thing. I would recommend this book to anyone who is even slightly interested in selling on EBay. It really is much easier than I thought it was and the profits are incredible. I have tons of success stories with EBay. I only started a few months ago and this book was filled with all kinds of helpful ideas. I shop for most of my items at yard sales and flea markets but I never thought about buying new items that are on sale and then selling them online later on as the seasons change. Great tip! I too, haven’t settled on one specific item to sell, I sell anything and everything that catches my eye and that I think I can turn a big profit on. You can also be successful! First, read this book and then go out and follow the steps and tips that you learned in it. You won’t regret it. This book was a great buy!!!

Aaron Kinder

People ask me all the time “is selling internationally on eBay difficult?”
My answer is: “Not if you know what you’re doing.”

Most new eBay sellers stay far away from selling abroad. The customs forms, potential tariffs, and insane shipping costs are all justifications to keep our stuff safely within our borders. After all, there’s no such thing as international Media mail. What do I do if someone in the UK wins that old dictionary I’m selling? How do I track my package once it’s left our country? Isn’t there a language barrier I’m up against? And where the heck is Timbuktu?

With all of these uncertainties it’s easy to rationalize that it’s all too daunting. The biggest reason sellers stay away from dipping a toe in foreign markets is that they are afraid. I know this because I was scared once too. I admit it. I assumed I needed veins of steel to do this. And because I’ve reached the other side of this equation and came out on top I feel it’s necessary to get the word out, that it’s time to hear the truth about moving your goods to new lands. If you can sell domestically, you can sell internationally. Not only is it exhilarating to launch and land packages around the world, but there’s so much more money to be made just by doing so. I now currently list all of my items internationally and half of those sales are to customers abroad.

As with our first #1 best seller eBay book, How to eBay in Real Life, this installment is replete with fresh stories from the trenches – big mistakes and huge successes, hot tips and cool tricks, best kept secrets and worst told lies. The ultimate goal is to prep you for the most common and the most unique situations that may pop up while transitioning into a confident International seller. By the end of this book you will not only believe that you can ship your merchandise anywhere in the world, but you’ll even prefer it.

Just get ready to remove your domestic safety net because now it’s your time to perform on the global stage.

Holy Parenting: Making the Common Sacred

Benjamin Kerns

Price: FREE

Holy Parenting came as a timely read for me. I was immediately drawn into the book as Benjamin Kerns described a chaotic scene from his home and I thought, “That is exactly what it’s like in MY house!” He writes in a casual, genuine voice, and one with wisdom and experience behind it. The author allows us to relate to him by expressing the harsh reality of child-rearing without sugar-coating anything. With honesty and humility, the author leads us through how he and his wife have struggled with parenting and have found practical, loving ways to model Christ-like love and grace to their children. Further, the author takes from his 15+ years as a youth pastor and gives insight on solid ways to connect with your children and lead them toward their own relationship with Jesus.
Benjamin Kerns offers personal reflections, spiritual exercises, and sound advice that translate into relatable and “doable” practices within your own household. Simple disciplines that we have read about before in other arenas, such as having a bedtime routine and strict “lights out” time take on a new meaning and importance when paired with teaching your children how to pray and connecting with your spouse afterward. Holy Parenting is a must-read for any parent in any stage of child-rearing. I highly recommend reading it together with your spouse to doubly impact your marriage, your spiritual lives, and the lives of your children.

Amy

Having a child is truly amazing. However, if we are honest, there is a natural grieving process that happens as we realize our old life is now over. One of the most difficult aspects to get over is losing personal space and time. All of the freedoms we have grown accustomed to have instantly gone away.
For Christian parents who have once had a thriving walk with God, having little children has made it next to impossible to stay connected the way we used to. But take heart, this season of life doesn’t have to be defined by dry spirituality.
Holy Parenting is a book that walks along with you as a parent: helping you come to terms with this new reality, expand your devotional diet, and providing helpful tools to develop your own faith as well as the faith of your children.

Growing Up Amish: A Memoir

Ira Wagler

Price: $2.99

I always wondered what it would be like to be Amish, hoping that my profession as a writer might grant me an opportunity to live life–even just temporarily–among the Amish.
While that has never happened, I have been able to get a closer look into the life of the plain people by Ira Wagler’s memoir, “Growing Up Amish.” Indeed, Wagler did grow up Amish, but after two decades of wrestling with his peoples’ ways, finally left the fold.
I received a complimentary copy of this book for review from Tyndale House Publishers and read it within days of starting. It was captivating as it drew me into his lifestyle and all the heartaches it wreaked for Wagler as he shares how he struggled with his desire to remain with the community he loved and his desire for freedom outside the faith’s strict rules.
Wagler’s first-person account peels away the facade of piety that we usually imagine when we think of the Amish. They are not perfect, and he showcases many instances that remind us that we are all human, even the Amish. Filled with raw emotion and honesty, “Growing Up Amish” is a riveting and eye-opening tale of life inside this close-knit group of believers.

Elizabeth Carmen

New York Times eBook bestseller!
One fateful starless night, 17-year-old Ira Wagler got up at 2 AM, left a scribbled note under his pillow, packed all of his earthly belongings into in a little black duffel bag, and walked away from his home in the Amish settlement of Bloomfield, Iowa. Now, in this heartwarming memoir, Ira paints a vivid portrait of Amish life—from his childhood days on the family farm, his Rumspringa rite of passage at age 16, to his ultimate decision to leave the Amish Church for good at age 26. Growing Up Amish is the true story of one man’s quest to discover who he is and where he belongs. Readers will laugh, cry, and be inspired by this charming yet poignant coming of age story set amidst the backdrop of one of the most enigmatic cultures in America today—the Old Order Amish.

Sacred Marriage: What If God Designed Marriage to Make Us Holy More Than to Make Us Happy?

Gary Thomas

Price: $2.99

Too many Christian books dealing with marriage present an idealistic veiw of marriage. Gary Thomas presents a real view of marriage that is very refreshing, insightful, and most importantly, very helpful. What’s great is that it is not just about marriage, instead it is about how God uses marriage to make us grow. I would recomend this book to anyone who’s marriage is struggling, but also to those who’s marriage is strong but in need of boost. Buy this book. You’ll love it.

Bill Wertz

Your marriage is more than a sacred covenant with another person.
It is a spiritual discipline designed to help you know God better, trust him more fully, and love him more deeply.
Scores of books have been written that offer guidance for building the marriage of your dreams. But what if God’s primary intent for your marriage isn’t to make you happy . . . but holy? And what if your relationship isn’t as much about you and your spouse as it is about you and God?
Everything about your marriage–everything–is filled with prophetic potential, with the capacity for discovering and revealing Christ’s character. The respect you accord your partner; the forgiveness you humbly seek and graciously extend; the ecstasy, awe, and sheer fun of lovemaking; the history you and your spouse build with one another–in these and other facets of your marriage, Sacred Marriage uncovers the mystery of God’s overarching purpose.
This book may very well alter profoundly the contours of your marriage. It will most certainly change you. Because whether it is delightful or difficult, your marriage can become a doorway to a closer walk with God, and to a spiritual integrity that, like salt, seasons the world around you with the savor of Christ.

Praying God’s Word for Your Husband

Kathi Lipp

Price: $1.99

Kathi Lipp’s book, Praying God’s word for your husband is a resource every woman should have. Sometimes we can’t find the right words to say, but we don’t have to. GOD’S word is readily available to us. Lipp reminds us of key scriptures and breaks down areas where our husbands may need extra prayer. One of my favorite sections is “Understanding God’s Plan For His Life And Dreams.”

From Tia’s Pen

Women often offer up polite prayers to God without any real hope of seeing change in their marriage, their husbands, or themselves. Kathi Lipp directs women to Scripture and shows wives how to pray God’s Word boldly and in full confidence of seeing God-sized results. With a light touch and an approachable style, Lipp shows women what a blessing it is to pray for their husbands, addressing specific concerns, like praying for his:

parenting
career and finances
relationship with God and others
emotional health
future
and more

Lipp shows readers how to stop feeling helpless and start making a difference in their husbands’ lives through bold, expectant prayer, whether they are new believers or have been walking with God for years.
